How Important is Code? A plea for help from us to new posters!

Aug 3, 2010 6:26 AM

Please don't ask a layout question (or really almost any other question) here without also giving us a look at the code on your page.  The best way to do this is to upload the page and its dependent files, and to post a link to this uploaded page.  A poor second alternative would be to paste your code into your post using the double chevron icon on the toolbar, and selecting Syntax Highlighting > Plain Text.

 

Without knowing what you have in your code, we cannot possibly answer anything other than a very simple question.  Save us the trouble of engaging in twenty questions to find out what you have done and just show us the code.  After all, it's what determines what happens on the page, not your screenshot or your description.

 

Please?

    Well said, Murray.  This should be required reading when new people log-in to the DW forum.

     

    It is mentioned on the How to Get Help Quickly page but nobody sees it.

But don't post  links to anything you don't want indexed by a search engine. Create a  test folder on the site, and remove the page when the problem has been  solved."

    Sorry bad joke.  I was referring to the fact that you keep having to refer to this post.  Ya know...when you keep repeating yourself you

    sound like a broken record.  Like I said...bad joke.

    I'm not sure if it's within the powers of moderators or not (I think it is), but a more effective way of presenting this posting could be to create it as a sticky topic.  If you visit the Forum Comments forum ( http://forums.adobe.com/community/general/forum_comments ) , you can see how they have a top row seat at all times and don't require bumping.  I believe the moderator in that forum implemented it.

     

    Just one suggestion in any case, you might consider changing the title to something more obvious.  As is, it can be read as a request from a new poster rather than a request for new posters to read it.

    Try PM-ing Jochem in the comments forum.  I'm pretty sure he did that in response to requests from people there.  He seems to be adept at manipulating things within moderator reach.

    Just because I am a new poster does not give you the right to blast me for asking a couple of questions. This was unprofessional and uncalled for. It was my understanding that these forums were for the exchange of knowledge. Evidently I was wrong.

    I don't think that this topic was aimed at anyone in particular. This is a great place to find answers to your questions. The information provided by the people here is relevent to anyone asking a question. The best way to find a solution to a problem is for the people who participate here to review the code of the problem page(s). The people who post answers here are really willing to help if you, the questioner (don't think that's a real word), will provide them with all the relevent information.They in turn will provide you with the tools to fix  your problem.

     

    Thanks everyone for helping me become designer.

     

    Jim

     

    Oh, by the way----     bump

    I've just had this topic aimed at me.

     

    I'm not a new poster, and have always found this forum very helpful indeed - I asked what I thought was a very basic quick question..  I often do post code, but try to judge whether I think the type of question warrants it, which in this particular case, I didn't think it did - I thought (and still do) that there was an obvious gap in my knowledge with a simple answer.  There was no desire to irritate the forum users.

     

    Its irritating though to get an email with an apparent answer which turns out to be a link to this page.

     

    If anyone reading this forum can help with my original question I would be very grateful (see http://forums.adobe.com/message/3470031#3470031).

    Thank you for your kind advice. I will remember it for the future. Here is the code that goes with my previous post:

    Skin & Cancer Associates and the Center for Cosmetic Enhancement ® (“SCA”) is a physician group practice that was founded in 1970.  The group has grown steadily over the years, as has its reputation as a collection of top-notch doctors.  SCA now boasts 43 dermatologists practicing out of 26 locations.  The physicians in the group are all Board-Certified Dermatologists, which means they have passed a rigorous examination proving their mastery of dermatology and its many component parts including dermatopathology.                   

     

                    

    Our Physicians Are Leaders
         

    As “Cosmetic Dermatology” has grown over the years the doctors of SCA have been leaders, research investigators, lecturers, and innovators in areas such as hair transplant surgery, ablative and nonablativelaser treatments, vein removal, the use of collagen and botox in wrinkle reduction, photorejuvenation, and many other areas.  With so many of the doctors in the group having intensively studied and trained in various aspects of cosmetic dermatology patients have unprecedented access to the right treatment for their condition. 

    26 Locations Serving Florida for Over 41 Years

    Skin and Cancer Associates has physcian offices in twenty six locations in the state of Florida to serve you. Our offices locations are as far South as Marathon, in the  Florida Keys, to Tallahassee in the State's capitol where we have two offices.

    I cannot post a link because it is not possible from my office. I do hope you will consider helping me. I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance. And have a nice day and a happy holiday.

    Your source code did not appear in the post. Instead of replying to an old announcement, please start a new discussion.

     

    Please use a brief but descriptive Subject line.

    To paste source code into the Forum, use the blue chevrons >>  Syntax highlighting > Plain.

     

    Pasted code looks like this...

    Judy,

     

    Could you continue with your original message at this link:

     

    <http://forums.adobe.com/message/3632294#3632294>

     

    The reason is that people might suspect you are a spammer by using a very old thread to paste your website details especially when it has to do with medical stuff.  I know you are a genuine person but just to be on the safe side.

     

    Post a link to your site so that we can see the code ourselves.

    I looked and looked on the Adobe help and in the forums for an answer to my question. I DO think very hard before I post a question. But I tell you, I was so saddened when I get the responses that I got (except for one kind person, Adninjastrator). I thought the Adobe Community help was just that. Help. But instead I got bombarded with  (what I can only describe as) a good-ole-boy-club of people that don't remember what it was like to be a beginner.  I felt like I was in some kind of chat-room that did nothing but INSULT me. NOT that I'm asking to have things handed to me. For gosh sakes. I am a self-motivated (+50) person who had to purchase Dreamweaver at full price and (on my own) learn how to use it! I had thought asking a question from the 'Adobe Commnitee' would be a great place to start. I was way wrong. You have made me feel like I don't belong and that is really, really sad. I expected something more professional from you.

    Ditto that! Honestly, if you dont like a question, ask for clarification or just opt to not answer it. Your wasting a lot of people's time by attacking folks who need help. Come on down off your high horse, Murray.

    If you're referring to this post then you've misinterpreted Murray's post. There's no high horse anywhere here.

     

    He's not shouting at anyone.

     

    He's pleading.

    OK, I'm confused Cheryl. I looked at all of your posts and did not see anyone insulting you. Are you referring to a different forum?

    Sorry to hear that.

     

    Do you have any links to examples of this so we can increase standards in the forums?

     

    I've looked at the threads you've been involved in but I honestly cannot find any such responses.

    Thanks for taking the time to look into it. I guess my frustration put me over the edge. But I really feel intimidated using the forum help, as I fear getting the initial response that I did from Murray. Case closed.

     

     

     

    Thanks again, Cheryl Breunig

    Possibly, I’m not at this point going backwards to look it up. I need to move ahead of this. Thanks for taking the time to look into it. I guess my frustration put me over the edge. But I really feel intimidated using the forum help, as I fear getting the initial response that I did from Murray. Case closed.

    I understand your frustration. But as far as I can tell, Murray has never responded to any of your posts. Before making a personal accusation in public forum you should have your facts straight.

    I got the message, loud & clear, but the post he posted to someone else (that came to me) shouted, all the same. I’m over this, believe me--want to move forward.

     

     

     

    Thanks for taking the time. I’m learning fast.

    Hello Murray,

     

    as you/we can see, this thing has dissolved into pleasure. Due to its length now, it became - in my opinion - very complex. Therefore I would suggest, because the theme of this thread still has its validity, that you as the initiator, would give this topic a new heading and a new text, and put it at the old place instead of the current.

     

    What do you think about it?

     

    Hans-Günter
